In the summer of 1947, "flying saucers" became all the rage in the United States... but unexplained encounters with strange, unidentified aerial phenomena were nothing new in other parts of the world; especially in the United Kingdom. Years before his wartime service as Prime Minister, Winston Churchill had taken interest in reports of unusual "Scareships" appearing in British skies, representing what might have been the British government's earliest involvement with UFO investigations.
Joining us this week for a deep-dive into the history of the British government's involvement with UFOs is Nick Pope, who worked the UFO desk at the Ministry of Defence for several years. He has since continued to advocate for the study of mysterious aerial phenomena, and efforts toward determining their possible origins and any risks they might present to National Security. Nick Pope shares his own historical research into Britain's involvement with the UFO question, which includes Foo Fighter investigations, Britain's "Flying Saucer Working Party," and his own investigations during his time at the MoD.
